October 2023 | Inspired by Andrée, Osteoarchaeologist
Andrée holds a BSc in Forensic Science and Anthropology from Laurentian University, a MSc in Human Osteology and Funerary Archaeology from the University of Sheffield, and a PhD in Biological Anthropology from the University of Manitoba. In her current position as an Assistant Professor in Forensic Science at Laurentian University in Ontario, Canada, Andrée loves to "geek out" over bones with her students, sharing with them just how amazingly cool the human skeleton and skeletal system is.
When asked what she would say to young girls to inspire them today to pursue a STEM degree program or future career, Andrée said: "Go full speed into whatever you are passionate about. Don't worry about people thinking you're weird. All the best people are weirdoes."

Andrée named her dark coordinating color "Foramen" for a term that indicates a void within our bones: "Foramen are interesting because they clearly reflect the closer relationship between our skeletal system and all our other tissues. From the foramen magnum at the base of the skull which allows your spinal cord to meet your brain, to the itty-bitty nutrient foramen allowing blood supply into your bones, these features show just how connected our systems are and that bones are indeed living tissues."
Foramen pairs well with Osteoarchaeologist, also inspired by Andrée.
